Two men died after falling from the Arrow Final route on Table Mountain. Their third companion, a woman, survived the fall, which occurred on 1 January 2018.
Johan Marais Spokesperson Wilderness Search and Rescue says it is unclear what caused the fall, but the two men who died, did so from their injuries.
The threesome were on the route, going up the mountain, when something happened which caused all three of them to fall. They were, however, attached to ropes which prevented them from falling all the way down. But they fell quite a long way, while they were each attached to a rope. And in that process, two of the three persons sustained injuries which proved to be fatal.— Johan Marais Spokesperson Wilderness Search and Rescue
Marais says the women who survived was brought down the mountain by Wilderness Search and Rescue operatives using the cable car.
